Here is a guide that seems reliable, IMHO: http://www.lwvtexas.org/2009VG/2009CAVG%5BFINAL%5D.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I have opinions on the following proposition:
  • Proposition 2 will require homesteads to be appraised for taxation based only on the value of the property as a residence. This means that the appraisal district cannot decide that your home would be worth more as a gas station and set the value accordingly.
  • Proposition 11 solidifies the prevention of abuse of eminent domain.

Proposition 11 was pushed due to the state wanting to gobble up land for the big toll road, the Trans-Texas Corridor. When its time to vote, don't forget the need to enact legislation to protect landowners from this current governor's plan. Who would have thought there really needed to be a vote and a new law to stop Perry from taking private property.
